Twinsie Tuesday: nail care routine

Hey everyone, this week the Twinsies are bringing something different. We're showing our nail care routines. To be honest, I don't necessarily have a "routine" that I follow on a regular basis but here's what I've been using.


I remove my nail polish with polish remover. I use acetone for clean up or on tough stains. When necessary, I uses my cuticle remover (and a little olive oil) on my cuticles and allow that to soak in and remove problem areas with gently with a nail file or my other nails. I never clip my cuticles. I then use a cuticle oil so my fingers don't look so dry. Lotion is my holy grail, doesn't matter what kind but I ALWAYS have to have lotion. So there you have it, that's the gist of my "routine" and I don't do that on a regular. I need to work on that though. Here's my nails after actually doing my routine.
 I can't wait to see how the other Twinsies take care of their nails.
